  1. Twice triggered a smoke alarm at 1AM and shortly afterward. Batteries replaced with Lithium AA’s about three months ago. No smoke, no dust, nothing. This is a basement alarm near a door that goes outside (walk out basement). First time it went off, told monitoring that no smoke etc. Replaced batteries with new Alkaline AA’s. Sat and stared at the unit a couple of minutes and it went off again; told monitoring there wasn’t smoke and to cancel alarm. They said they would put it in test for 8 hours. In the meantime, I have plenty other detectors in my basement (two are house wired ones), so I’m comfortable leaving the Iris one off for right now. Date code on the unit it early 2015. Put it in the summer of 2015. Apparently no dust or debris in it. Going to give support a call tomorrow. I don’t like being woken up by false alarms at 1AM. Good news is the monitoring does work and they call super quick. That’s why I paid for the service :-)

    Deadbolt locked but iris doesn't know

    Gotcha. I had two V2 switches doing nothing, so placed one smack between the front and back doors and the other near the garage. One replaced a TP Link foyer lamp switch, and the other one has nothing plugged into it. Hopefully time will tell. I have four of the first gen plugs powering lamps with IRIS, but my Wemo plug count is going up too. Good thing Google and Alexa can control both. Sent from my moto x4 using Tapatalk

    Anyone still having this issue? I have the lock literally 11’ from the hub. There’s also a smoke detector 10’ away and a thermostat 12’ away.

    Keypad battery life

    When I had the name brand batteries (Energizer, etc), I'd get more time out of my keypad than the generic ones I've been buying on Amazon lately. "Starlite" or whatever they're called were cheap, but man, I don't even get the low battery warning. Just one day they're dead. About every two months like clockwork on my two keypads. The AA keypads last forever. Like a year or more.

    Anyone have a smart plug (2nd gen) take a crap?

    I called Support up finally... they gave me three months credit, so I'm going to use that to buy a new one. No surge that I'm aware of. Nothing else in the house had issues; and this was on a surge protector itself.

    Nope. Water gets nowhere near this power strip behind the couch.

    Just a LED table lamp. Nothing too major. I'll call support tomorrow. I just usually dread calling them though :-)

    I already opened it up... and it's probably more than a year old at this point. Had to use a screwdriver to get it open. I'll just integrate my Wemo into the Alexa skill that manages this group of lights downstairs for right now.
  10. The capacitor on here appears to have just incinerated and flipped the breaker. Of course, it's dead now, so I opened it up to see what failed. Anyone else's do this?

    Anyone else having issues around 4 pm Eastern?

    Still missing some functionality. 1) Kids FOBs still aren't showing up on the family card, and thus not triggering any rules. The FOBs do show up in Devices. 2) The IRIS Garage door opener is still ghosted out. I can't do anything with it.

    I sense a Problem Record being generated and they probably have all their support team correlating incidents and working on identifying the errors... their IT department for IRIS must be swarming with a lot of stressed out analysts right about now.

    Just tried mine.. it's working. Although, the only thing I control with it is the downstairs lights and the two thermostats

    Still having a few quirks with the app as of 5:03ET. Home and Family card still doesn't list the four first generation key FOBs Garage door opener open/close button is ghosted out in Devices and under Doors and Locks Scenes -> my scene -> Choose what this Scene does still doesn't show any of the actual four actions

    I thought it was strange last night when I could not unlock/lock my doors. Another quirk - my first gen key FOBs for my four kids are still listed under devices, but the system is not showing them under the "home and family" card. In fact, the Home and Family card just has the "learn more" button on it. So, that also means my rules about making sure the doors are locked after each kid leaving aren't working either. I've reset the hub and force quit the app (and tried apps on multiple devices), yet the lock rules aren't working, nor are the devices showing up on the "home and family" card. You know, this gets rather frustrating, Lowe's.... at least tell me when you're going to do crap like this. Edit: Also, if I go under my scenes, and find my "Good Night" scene... and then click on actions (it says there's four), I get a blank screen that says "Actions" as the title, then "Recommended For You" with "More Devices needed" underneath it. No four rules being listed. Sheesh.
